Hello/ Goodbye

November 1, 2008
By Trey Lee, Hoover, AL

I remember last year
Seeing you in the hall
I heard your name today
I was sad i didnt know you at all
Last yerar
I didnt know you were there
Now im sad
We don't have memories to share
I read all these comments
I read all those post
From all of your friends
The ones who loved you most
They say bottling emotions
Is bad for your health
But am still fighting tears
Even though i didnt know you myself
I really hate this
How the good die so quick
Im not even mad
It just makes me sick
But your in a better place
Somewhere way up High
So Drew, its nice to meet you
Hello, and good bye

-RIP Drew

This is an absolutely amazing poem, I love how you're able to capture emotion, although you never even knew him. You did a great job and this is definitely worthy of publishing.

I felt like crying. It was a really sensitive and tender poem. Keep up the good work. You did have a few grammatical errors though. But overall,it was a great poem.

This was amazing. The grammar could use some work, but I really almost cried reading it.
